Title: A case of scrotal swelling mimicking testicular torsion preceding Henoch-Schönlein vasculitis
Author: C. Akgun

Abstract: Henoch-Schönlein purpura, is one of the most common types of multisystemic vasculitis seen in childhood. The major clinical manifestations are cutaneous purpura, arthritis, abdominal pain, gastrointestinal bleeding, and nephritis. Isolated central nervous system vasculitis, seizures, coma and hemorrhage, Guillan--Barré syndrome, ataxia and central and peripheral neuropathy, ocular involvement, orchitis, epididymitis or testicular torsion are medical or surgical complications.  In this study, we report a 7-year-old boy with scrotal swelling mimicking testicular torsion with ultrasonographic and clinical findings that the typical clinical features of Henoch–Schönlein purpura including rashes and arthritis were developed after one week of surgery (Ref. 15).

Keywords: scrotal swelling, mimicking testicular torsion, Henoch–Schönlein vasculitis, Guillan-Barré syndrome, arthritis.
